Beraca to launch the CBA ingredient – a natural and safe alternative to CDB – at in-cosmetics Global 2020

Beracare CBA, Cannabinoid Active System is a complex of Amazon Oils that reduce the inflammatory activity and stimulate the production of β-endorphin

Beraca is to launch 2 innovative products at in-cosmetics Global, which will take place from the 31st March to the 2nd April, at Fira de Barcelona – Gran Via Venue, in Barcelona, Spain.

The first one is Beracare CBA – Cannabinoid Active System – which is an active compound with proven efficacy to decrease the effects of premature ageing related to inflammatory stress, as well as being an ingredient with de-stressing and well-being properties.

The second product to be launched is the Açai Extract, a 100% natural and sustainable proageing ingredient that fits into the worldwide concept of ageing with quality and being satisfied with your experiences and appearance. The Açaí Extract has no additives and it is made from
the berry native to the Amazon Region.

This particular ingredient has the ability to mitigate wrinkle formation, improve skin’s vitality and glow, protect and repair against external aggressions, in addition to being a powerful antioxidant.

Beracare CBA, Cannabinoid Active System

The search for natural ingredients that aim at well-being is a constant in the current world where the concepts of well-being in various aspects of life, such as internal balance, health and beauty, allied to the reduction of daily stress, are on the rise. In line with this trend, Beraca presents its active compound with proven efficacy in reducing inflammatory activity and promoting the production of β-endorphin, one of the hormones responsible for providing a feeling of well-being.

“Beraca is always concerned to develop products in a way which is sustainable and ethical while measuring its direct impact on nature and society. Beracare CBA, in addition to being developed within these guidelines, is an avant-garde active compound because it aims to
answer the current consumers’ demand, who increasingly seeks beauty products for mindfulness. Beracare CBA has well-being and stress-relieving properties, promoting several benefits to the skin, such as a feeling of relaxation, improvement in healing activity and overall
comfort. ”- explains Daniel Sabará – CEO of Beraca.

Beracare CBA, Cannabinoid Active System, is a complex of Amazon oils with high levels of terpenes and unsaturated fatty acids – especially linoleic acid. This important component is related to the increase in skin’s permeability, improving the efficacy of the active. Furthermore, the product is a safe alternative to CBD (Cannabidiol), which is not approved in many countries for cosmetic use. Beracare CBA has the versatility of uses and applications in different cosmetic products such as tonics and gels, lotions, creams, soaps, scalp products, amongst others.

Efficacy Tests
3 of the tests performed in the lab have stood out:

Test 1 and 2 (Anti-inflammatory activity and protective effect)
When under the action of Beracare CBA in an inflamed microenvironment, there was a reduction of 55% in interleukine IL – 1β and also a significant decrease of 25.2% in the interleukin IL – 6 levels in human skin culture which leads to concluding that the ingredient acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and has protective effect on the skin.

Test 3 (Wellness Properties)
When having the skin culture stressed by LTA (the inflammatory agent which stresses the skin tissue), there was a 39.6% reduction of β-endorphin. On the other hand, the use of Beracare CBA was able to avoid the decrease of B-endorphin besides stimulating its production by 92.2% proving the product’s efficacy when it also comes to skin healing.

Beraca will also launch its new ingredient Açai Extract at in-cosmetics Global to the international market. The product has no additives, it is made from the berry native to the Amazon Region, 100% natural, sustainable and plays the main role in the pro-ageing trend, which has come to break with the pattern that dictates that ageing is bad.

“Our launch fits into the worldwide concept of ageing with quality. The term anti-ageing is giving way to the pro-ageing movement, where people are realizing that there is no reason to condemn the advancement of age, but rather to embrace it in the best possible way. Beraca’s Açaí Extract
enhances the pro-ageing trend because it is a powerful antioxidant, proven through efficacy tests, which also revealed excellent anti-glycation and anti-pollution results. ”- explains Marianna Cyrillo, marketing manager at Beraca.

In vitro tests confirmed a final reduction on the negative of pollution by 58.5%. The tests, conducted by an independent laboratory, confirmed its efficacy by exposing cells previously treated with Açaí Extract to impurities.

Glycation is the connection of sugars with skin proteins, which, when it occurs, reduces lustre and shine. The cells treated with the product showed a 56.7% reduction in the formation of these glycating agents, proving to be an antiglycan active. The extract also protects cell cultures and prevents the production of superoxide anion, which is why it is considered an antioxidant.

At in-cosmetics Global, in addition to having contact with these product launches, the visitor will also be able to discover countless other products in Beraca’s portfolio.

Beraca News:

Beraca recently expanded its factory in Ananindeua, Pará (northern part of Brazil), with the incorporation of new technology, based on a complex multipurpose bio-extractor, which allows the processing products native to local biodiversity as well as other ingredients of natural origin, demanded by the market.

Therefore, in addition to the extensive portfolio of oils and butter, a wide range of extracts, bioactive and different aromatic compounds may be produced by the industry by extracting leaves, roots, resins, vegetable oils, among others. The new ingredients, many of them unheard of in the market, will be manufactured with standardization of active ingredients and biological activity proven through tests of efficacy and application, adding value and innovation to the finished products developed by the company’s customers.
